Here are a couple of notices about things coming up and some plans for the future. Take a look and let us know what you think. Bill and I are always keen to hear from NetSquared Wellington members about what you'd like to talk or learn about. We hope to see you soon.
We Can Help You Tell the Story of Your Nonprofit's Impact
TechSoup's annual Storymakers campaign launches September 5. We know that good stories power fundraising and marketing, so join one of our free events to discover powerful case studies and connect with digital storytelling experts in your community. If you don't have a local group (I can help fix that problem!) there's also free online guides and a global tweet chat October 5 using the hashtag #storymakers2017.
Everyone is talking about Agile... But what does it actually mean? And how can I benefit from using agile frameworks like scrum or kanban?
Helga Breuer is a passionate Agile Coach with 15 years of international experience in the software development area over a wide range of industries.
In this workshop you will learn about the roots and benefits of Agile. Get inspired to apply that mindset to your daily work, using frameworks like scrum or kanban. Helga will present a valuable hands-on overview with tangible exercises and examples, that will show you, how to get started. Learn how to increase your throughput while focusing on your most important values and goals.
Here at TechSoup, we're big on stories. Effective storytelling means nonprofits can reach more people, touch more hearts, and create bigger impact.
TechSoup's NetSquared meetups will bring local nonprofits free digital storytelling workshops to more than 40 cities between August and October. Storymakers presents a unique opportunity to participate in storytelling education and capacity-building with a focus on using Adobe Spark to create social media graphics. The world is better when nonprofits can better tell their story.
tl;dr: After 10 years NetSquared broke the 100 active groups barrier. Yay!
NetSquared is TechSoup’s global network of volunteer-led nonprofit technology meetups. We're the answer to the question “where can I get support to use technology effectively at my nonprofit?” Event attendees build their networks and learn practical technology skills to support their programs, marketing and fundraising.
